Buckle up for a 4x4 adventure to 6,000 feet above sea level. From Khasab, you’ll drive up into the mountains of the Musandam Peninsula, making pit-stops at viewpoints along the way. The village of Sayah is on the cards, too. This picturesque hamlet tumbles down the hillside, and is still occupied by desert-dwelling Bedouin people. The settlement is famous for its ancient petrographs – 3,000-year-old paintings splattered on the rock face. Later on, you’ll drive up near the summit of Jebel Harim, which translates as the ‘mountain of women’. Up here, expect to see more millennia-old petroglyphs, and fossils that are studded into the rocks. Of course, the photo opportunities from these heights are spectacular, in particular the Khawr Najid this stunning view point overlooks the Indian Ocean
